Moyes reveals injury doubt

David Moyes has revealed that he has one injury doubt ahead of the London Stadium game against Manchester United on Sunday.

“In terms of team news, Said Benrahma got a knock on his knee when he came on against Dinamo Zagreb,” Moyes told the media (whufc.com).

“But apart from that the squad are mostly fully available.”

With his main man, out and possibly Benny too, Moyes could need to decide how Nikola Vlasic, Jarrod Bowen or Andriy Yarmolenko fit into Sunday’s starting eleven to combat Manchester United.

Manuel Lanzini could also get a surprise call up as he did on Thursday to face Zagreb in the Europa League game.

The manager could decide to play a more defensive set-up against the Red Devils with a false nine a possibility at the London Stadium without a recognised striker.

A false nine is an attacking player who repeatedly moves towards the ball in deeper positions from a high starting position, often dropping to receive centrally.
